Most existing pain-relieving pillows are not very effective in reducing pain due to several reason, including:
No Tension Release
To reduce pressure from the upper back, head, and neck, it is important to provide full support to your entire body that helps in taking off weight from your spine, shoulders, and neck. While traditional and orthopedic pillows do not provide support to your upper back. Also, do not lift your head properly, which is mandatory to release tension from your shoulders and neck.
No Back Support
Traditional and some orthopedic pillows provide no support to your upper and lower back. Mostly these pillows stop at the neck, but support for the upper and lower back and head in unison is important to reduce pressure from your spine.
Some orthopedic and traditional pillows do not help in aligning your spine. On the other hand, the DaVinci Orthopedic Pillow helps in aligning your spine because it put your spine in a proper position that helps in releasing tension.
Traditional and some orthopedic pillows do not provide decompression to your spine, which is important to relieve tension and pain from your spine, back, and neck.
Increase Tension and Muscle Pressure
Forced curvature from pre-existing orthopedic and cervical pillows can actually increase pressure on your neck back muscles, resulting in continued pain.
